She Thinks Purple's first annual Female Founders Showcase + Networking Luncheon is quickly approaching. For this inaugural event, we've assembled a fantastic lineup of speakers to deliver talks that illuminate how "purple thinking" grounded in courage, creativity, clarity, confidence, and community has fueled their entrepreneurial journey. Each of these accomplished women has launched a company or social impact organizations that is enriching the lives of others. We just know you'll be inspired by their stories.
Lara Holliday was preparing for a road trip that would change her life in unexpected ways. Not only was she going to be away from her family and businesses for several days, she was traveling with a woman that she had met only a few weeks prior to a far and unfamiliar place. As if that wasn’t anxiety producing enough, Lara’s oldest daughter, Josephine, was battling a cold. Likely sensing the mommy guilt, Josephine said to Lara, “Go, Mama. You have to do this.”
Lara went on that road trip to Charleston, South Carolina; and what she experienced profoundly shifted her perspective on community and crystallized her decision to launch Tide Risers-- a yearlong cohort experience for women leaders.
She hasn’t looked back.
